Design for what matters:

The BraunPrize 2018 challenges creative minds to envision design concepts that matter. Our world is becoming increasingly complex – our focus should be on what is essential, on creating truly better solutions and experiences. By taking on global problems or simply improving the quality of individual lives, we want to encourage innovation that can be virtua or physical, scientific or technical, or that changes our behavior for the better. Awards willgo to exceptional ideas and product design concepts – 2 or 3 dimensional, including interactive – that offer progress and improvement, that are significant, substantial, and meaningful: design for what matters.

Jury sessions & Design Forum

Judging process in 3 steps

Jury session – June 2018
In the jury session, the entries are evaluated by the panel of judges with great care and thoroughness; many discussions will follow to select the best entries.
The best entries will be notified via email after the jury session, in early June 2018, to prepare their submissions for the next judging step. They may qualify as a Finalist, Special Mention or Sustainability Award winner by sending a video presentation of their project to the jury by early July 2018.
Finalists qualifying – July 2018
In the next judging step, the Finalists for Gold-Silver-Bronze Awards in each category are chosen, as well as the winners of the Sustainability Awards. In addition, the jury will select further outstanding projects to be part of the BraunPrize exhibition.
Those who qualify will receive further information about next steps to prepare their presentation to the design forum. A physical design model need only be submitted if specifically requested by us. Travel and accommodation costs for the award winners will be covered.
Final judging forum – September 2018
The final selection of award winners will be made in the “Design Forum”. Here, the Finalists will present their projects to the jury and a selected audience of about 200 representatives who are either designers or who work in industry, technology and the media and have a special interest in the field of design. The Design Forum then votes to select the final Gold, Silver and Bronze winners.
